News from Saudi and the big wide world

The Muslim teachers leave at one pm, while we have to sit around until three. No big problem and Project Free TV can be easily played in the room reserved for us for food etc. Moreover, the 3 o’clock finish and the no, or little, traffic at the border sort of almost guarantees my getting back to Adliya at 4 pm.

Of course, I am not Snowden, he was, after all, in the inside and he did, after all cross his “eyes” and dot his “tees”, in a way that I didn’t quite manage and, hey, who would want to be in Mr Snowden’s shoes?
